What we do

Welcome to the website for University Communications and Marketing! We're commonly known as UCM, and our office serves the mission of Ohio University by developing and executing effective communications strategies in support of University initiatives and priorities.

News, media relations, social media services, publications, photography, and video production are all a part of UCM, and we collaborate with the Office of Information Technology in developing University websites. Each of these media platforms is staffed with skilled professionals who use the latest technologies to convey University-related news and events and champion the institution’s programs, goals, and vision of the future. 

Our efforts serve both internal audiences (students, faculty, and staff) as well as external constituencies (alumni, parents, donors, and the general public).

We invite you to explore our website. You can learn more about our major areas of expertise by selecting from the categories along the top of this page, or click here if you're ready to inquire about starting a project with us.
